In a tiny apartment, or anywhere, it’s nice to have a backup supply of toilet paper. Even better when that toilet paper arrives directly to your door, free of plastic, and made from 100% post-consumer paper (like old office papers and textbooks). Who gives a crap, you say? Well, yes. Precisely.
Who Gives A Crap is an Australia-based company selling 100% recycled toilet paper in bulk and shipping it in a plain cardboard box. Living in a small, city apartment, we need to be thoughtful about what we stock up on. There’s a lot that we can’t buy in bulk. When we shop from the bulk section of the grocery store, the quantities we come home with are sized to fit in mason jars and we restock them relatively frequently. Mostly, this doesn’t bother us, and it certainly comes with the territory of living in a small space, but when it comes to keeping a cache of toilet paper for a family of four, the stakes are a bit higher. Running out of lentils doesn’t induce panic, but realizing you have nary a roll and a toddler sitting on the toilet does.
That’s a long way of saying that we’ve started stashing Who Gives A Crap’s brightly wrapped rolls into the corners of every shelf in our linen/craft/utility closet and it’s been one hundred percent worth it.
The toilet paper itself is free from inks, dyes, and scents. It’s 3-ply and soft and, best of all, the extra long roll length means that you’re not replacing your roll every day. We’ve been using the recycled rolls, but for anyone wanting an even more luxurious experience, Who Gives A Crap also makes rolls from forest-friendly 100% bamboo.
More than only supplying an easy, environmentally friendly approach to toilet paper, Who Gives A Crap donates a full 50% of their profits to nonprofit organizations working to “improve access to hygiene, water, and basic sanitation in developing countries.” To date, they’ve donated $1.2 million Aussie dollars—the equivalent of over $950,000.
